Well, son of a bitch. Hannah Levin was just in here yesterday and mentioned that one of my favorite locals groups, the Tall Birds, broke up. This sucks...big-time. In my opinion, when it came to psych-flavored garage rock, the Tall Birds had no equal. I wrote frontman Brian Standeford to see whhat happened. He says he doesn't really know, just that in a matter of two days' time, everything fell apart. Well, we'll miss ya, T-Birds. But it probably won't be long before those guys start some other projects. In the meantime, Standeford says he'll be concentrating on his poster design work. He's been making some serious headway in this department (as evidenced above). Look for more on Standeford and his posters in an upcoming issue.
